Kabardova, a modified technique Labor Motives Struc-ture by T. Badoiev, and Academic Motivation Inventory by T. Ilina. It has been proved that the decisive indicator of the quality of law students' training is the formation of their stable motivation for work in the chosen field, awareness of the social significance of their occupation, as well as adequate professional expectations of the future profession.
